Pregnant woman impersonates April the Giraffe

Facebook page

Now that giraffe has some serious competition.

A 39-week pregnant SC woman posted a almost 8-minute-long video of herself prancing around in a giraffe mask, hands on hips, belly displayed in all its glory, to Facebook late Sunday.

For almost three weeks, millions of people have tuned in to the live-stream of April the Giraffe as she awaits the birth of her calf at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, N.Y. As of 12 p.m. ET Monday, the video had over 10 million views and 235,000 shares.

She made a decision to have her own giraffe cam style set up for her own waiting. That's when a stroke of comedic genius hit her and her husband and they made a decision to create their own video.

Dietrich also commented she did not think so many people would get a kick out of it.

"It was my husband's idea to order a mask off Amazon and my idea to do a live feed last night to look like April's", she told HuffPost.

She donned a giraffe mask, and the rest is history. It'll be Dietrich's fourth child.

"Clearly we live an exciting life over here in the Dietrich household", she writes in the comments section.

As for the actual giraffe, the internet has been waiting for the 15-year-old giraffe to give birth for almost three weeks. Dietrich said they definitely plan to film an update when her son, Porter Lane, arrives.
